"Casa Tortuga met all of our expectations and more. My husband and I traveled with our three young children and were very pleased with our accommodations. The property management company arranged for our transportation from Cancun and from that point on it was smooth sailing. The condo was beautiful and spacious and had everything we could possibly have needed from beach towels, chairs, toys and coolers to a blender for mixing up our own frozen cocktails. The pool was the perfect distance from the condo, a mix of right out the door but not too close. In addition to the great location, amenities and beautiful sunshine we were located next to a beautiful golf course, the beach and great neighbors. Casa Tortuga does not disappoint. Thank you again Annabel!!"

"We chose Taninah for our wedding because it was so unique & private (how often do you get to rent an entire resort?!) We had a diverse group from grandparents to a 4 month old and in between with various comfort and budget levels. It was eco-luxury. Each cabana had a full bathroom with spa-like walk-in showers. Touring the place when we arrived was one delight after the other.
The staff was magic - invisible unless you needed anything. We would be hanging out & the mosquito nets were drawn, right next to me without me ever seeing them! I never caught them doing it although it was every night. But I never had trouble finding someone if I ever needed anything.
There are a few drawbacks - the biggest is not being directly on the beach and I was really worried about that because I *love* the beach. But, having your own private underground swimming grotto with water slide trumped the beach. Besides, we took a quick ride over to the beach two days- that was enough. The other drawback is that the food is served sort of family style - everyone gets essentially the same meal - in case you have any super finicky foodies. They were super accomodating about preferences - replacing seafood with chicken or even egg-less chocolate cake for the ones who didn't like eggs! Most of the food was very good and some was fantastic but if you're looking for every meal to be 5-star with adjectives on all your ingredients, you won't be happy. You do get to pick your menu (coconut shrimp was unbelievable). And daily fresh guacamole in the afternoon! Lastly, the resort is very eco-friendly. I actually loved this aspect but my convenience-trumps-all sis did notice some things, like the no resort-wide wifi (it was only at the main cabana) or composting toilet. I never noticed anything.
We chose Taninah as a splurge but it turned out to be very economical. Everyone stayed in their own spacious very private cabana, not a little hotel room. Anything we needed (including the alcohol), the staff got for us at Sam's Club or the grocery store, not resort prices. In the end, we spent much less (maybe half) than if we had gone to a typical resort (& we SEARCHED but never found one that met everyone's needs and budget). Taninah was the only one that was luxurious, economical, and convenient for families (no lugging gear when they move from trampoline to pool to playroom!).
Great place to bond - enough privacy to have your space but also spend time together.
GO! You won't regret it!"

"We arrived late at night and had no problems finding the condo or getting situated. Office staff was very helpful, unit was clean and nicely decorated. We loved the pool (we always had it to ourselves), Plank restaurant (office gave free brunch coupon and free drink coupons), secure underground parking. The Gym is an excellent facility. Indigo Beach Club is also a nice resource that's included and close, though the beach is not as nice as Tulum or hotel zone, as there are many wooden boats docked there with rope ties in the water. Proximity to 5th Avenue, pharmacies and medical care, restaurants, Mega and Walmart are all outstanding. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this condo again if I go back to Playa del Carmen."
